This book comprises a glorious photographic celebration of remarkable trains running through some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. This is the legendary Wild West where at every level there is a constant battle between nature, man and machine. The book spans a period of two decades, from the late eighties to the late noughties when there were significant changes in motive power generations and railroad mega mergers. Fallen flags, closed lines as well as Class 1 railroads are all featured and every western State is included. Veteran author and photographer John Vaughan illustrates the western scene in USA and Canada for posterity in over 200 stunning and memorable images that cannot be repeated, all complemented by informative captions.
